How will Council ensure the West End Recreation Hub is used correctly?

Users of the West End Recreation Hub should observe and follow the signage at the pontoon.

The area will be monitored to ensure the facility is used in accordance with the pontoon signage. 

What is the code of conduct for this hub?

Safe on-water conduct is guided by the Brisbane River Code of Conduct, which has been developed by Maritime Safety Queensland, Rowing Queensland, Transdev Brisbane Ferries and Council. 

The Code of Conduct, developed for all commercial and recreational users of the Brisbane River, aims to ensure everyone can use the river safely and provides guidelines for nuisance and noise. The guidelines stipulate that all users of the river need to be considerate of other water users and neighbouring properties.

A copy of this code can be found on Maritime Safety Queensland’s website.

Is there lighting at the hub?

Lighting has been installed on the gangway and pontoon to increase safety at the hub after hours.

What do I do if a vessel is moored for longer than the specified time?

To report craft that are moored dangerously or not in accordance with pontoon signage, you can call Council on 3403 8888 .
